Zedlast Did you check the door switch? If the door switch is fine, reset the circuit breaker. If it does not help then check the power cord connection to the dryer. One of two hot wires could be loose or burned out. If nothing of the above helped, let me know. back

Samsung snh9151b no power all thermal fuse and ceramic fuse checked good but still no power

Faulty door switch, Open dryer door, see if light comes on inside the dryer. If it does the door switch is good. If it doesn’t try resetting the breaker. *( dryer bulbs burn out) you may want to replace the bulb if light doesn’t come on before proceeding forward)
The start switch is another cause. You will have to unplug the dryer to check continuity.
A broken drum belt.
Turn timer on a cycle and listen for it making a ticking sound. You should as the timer is the least likely to fail, from my experience.


Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Dryer pull knob not engaging dryer, changed it, still doesn't work. Please help! : )

If it won't run at all that probably is due so some sort of lint build up. To get into this dryer you remove the door first and since it is reversible you remove 2 screws on the opposite side as well and then the goalpost shaped front can pop off there. Then you remove the 2 things that hold down the top to the frame. Then you can remove the shrould. Then you can get the drum out. On the blower housing is a round fuse most likely it is blown. Their is another one just like it also near the blower. Check it as well. Clean her up and look for a loose blower wheel. That can cause the fuse to blow also. Now HERE IS YOUR SERVICE MANUAL. When did you say them cookies was gonna be ready? LOL

Won't stop, have to manually open door

Sounds like a bad timer. Your dryer is a Whirlpool a replacement timer should be easy to locate. If the timer is advancing but the dryer won't stop, the problem could be the control unit. Run another load of clothes and take notice of the timer's position. If it doesn't run out, then it's very likely the timer. The video below shows step by step instructions for replacing the timer unit.


Maytag dryer model PYE4558AYW. Stopped running, and no light in drum. Getting power. Timer switch continues to work. Fried Timer?

first off check to see if you don;t have a breaker tripped in your breaker box ! also make sure there is 220v going to the recept.
then with unit unplugged remove the back cover to see if there is a wire burnt on the motor start switch which is common will be a red or a orange wire. if all that checks out then sounds like a timer issue

The timer is running but the dryer will not come

If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down

Maytag dryer sdg515daww stopped working.

I assume this is Gas dryer from the model number having a G.
The door switch may cause the problem. If its not running the dryer thinks the door is open? And the light will also stay off. You can jump around the wires on the door switch and see if it works then if so its switch time.

I don't think a thermal fuse should have anything to do with the light. But that's not a bad idea for quick trouble shooting if a manufacturer would do it. Use a volt meeter to verify the voltage you may have enough for the timer to make noise but not enough to make it turn and the dryer to run.

If there is power then try rotating the tub slightly. The motor may have stuck. Don't turn it too far unless you know which way the drum turns. and try alkways to turn it that direction. Keeps your belts on.

If this helped you please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Timer motor keeps running on dryer

sometimes as a timer gets older the timer motor will get a little loud. timer motors run even when the door is open. if the timer advances to off and everything works fine you don't need to worry about it.
